v/a- HILLBILLIES IN HELL Vol.13 (random colour vinyl) (RSD 2022)
2022 RSD release
The dark, etheric carnival of broken Nashville delights – Deathly Oracular Visions, Cuckolds, Wastrels, Chain Gang Laments and Fiery Apocalyptic Fever-Dreams. Sometimes grim, often beautiful – this extraordinary collection of knowns and unknowns, battered Opry legends and forgotten backwoods-poets and preachers features tales of Tenement Tragedies, Vengeful Vegetation, Proselytizing Playground Philosophies, Windswept Abandonment and Deathbed Confessions. Originally waxed in often penurious amounts, these Troubled Troubadours sing of Fatal Infidelities, Aching Hypocrisies, Deep Dark Depressions, Penal Punishments, Flaming Prophecies and Rapturous Revelations.
Years in the making – ‘Hillbillies In Hell’ (13) presents 16 timeless tribulations – a Lovecraftian clutch of Ancient Terrors, Sinful Seductions, Grinding Poverty, Debilitating Disfigurement, Hell’s Eternal Maze of Hardships and God’s Blazing Light of Redemption.
A misty shroud of marginal 45s – some of these sides are impossibly rare and are reissued here for the very first time. All for your cautionary listening pleasure.
